Think Tank announces new backpacks aimed at serious photographers.

Targeted at DSLR and CSC users, the Trifecta bags are designed to house three lenses – an ultra-wide, mid-range and telephoto zoom – along with a camera body, with side access so the photographer does not need to take off the backpack first. Photographers have complete access to their gear via the back panel. The Trifector 8 Mirrorless Backpack (£109) is built to carry a medium to large CSC, while the Trifector 10 DSLR Backpack (£124) should take a ‘standard-sized’ DSLR. There is also room for tablets and personal items. For details visit the Think Tank website.
